Graham, it's a pleasure to read your very positive comments about the Scottish Rock Garden Club's International Rock Gardener Online magazine. Those of us who are members of SRGC look forward eagerly each month to this wonderful resource as well as to Ian Young's weekly Bulblog and of course enjoy taking part in the Forum which covers so many serious and occasionally silly subjects.

Even those of us who really DO have a life other than with plants, have made more friends among SRGC's Online facilities than in any other way so it's good to have the Club making an appearance on your own blog. As they say, what goes around comes around. I was not aware of yours until I saw a comment on the SRGC Forum that the IRG was mentioned by you. I'll be a regular reader here now too.

Graham Rice

Thanks, Lesley, I appreciate our comments. Ever since I worked on the rock garden and in the alpine house at Kew so many years ago I've enjoyed alpines. And you mention Ian Young's Bulblog ( which this month, as it happens, features Eranthis. You're right, this too is a very valuable practical resource for bulb growers.

Margaret Young

Graham, thank you for your kind words about the IRG. Your mention of donations to support the work of the SRGC in bringing such resources to the public is also much appreciated. The SRGC takes its remit to disseminate information very seriously but, of course, this all costs money in terms of internet costs so reminders of the appreciation of support is most welcome.
The next IRG, online on Friday 28th March, will have articles from Gerrit Eijkelenboom from the Netherlands and Trond Høy from Norway on their individual reactions to the same trip earlier this year to see plants in South America with an international group of plant lovers.
